lol not a chance in hell. I'm not an SW fanboy but I'm not a hater either so I can call it like it is: Shaun is miles ahead of the competition, including Bretz.

Bretz beat Shaun in a single event and anyone who isn't biased by the blind hatred so many seem to have for Shaun could see that his run was bigger and more technical than Greg's. Also, qualifying place doesn't actually mean that much so I wouldn't read too much into the Breck Grand Prix so far.

Also, considering Shaun's last hit in his best run has now gone from a double cork 1260 to a double cork 1440 (although he isn't doing it in competition, his trainers have said he has it on lock now), I don't think Greg is much of a threat.

I wish someone would give him some serious competition though, because it's about time someone filled KP's shoes and started going bigger and better than Shaun.

andrewdod White will pull it out in the pipe I think... Not that I'm a fan boy or anything, I actually think he's a douche that is all about the money and not the boarding. But the dude is clutch he always has been, I don't think that he's been putting his best run out there lately.

Extremo No, he's competing both half pipe and slopestyle. If he was only focused on one event, he'd be the number one qualifier. He'll end up being the only US snowboarder to qualify in both events. But the margin of domination is dwindling.
